Ocular Hypertension (cont.)

Self-Care at Home
If your ophthalmologist prescribes medicines (see Medical Treatment and Medications) to help in lowering the pressure inside your eye, properly applying the medication and complying with your doctor’s instructions are very important. Not doing so could result in a further increase in intraocular pressure that can lead to optic nerve damage and permanent vision loss (ie, glaucoma).
